    We can't thank you all enough for The Fanatics, they did fantastic sets and got what us and our guests wanted to hear down to a T. They were all so lovely and professional and no doubt they will be requested for other events and weddings from our friends and family. We hope they enjoyed themselves as much as we did.

  • Hannah

    Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! You made sure that the dance floor was full at all times, and it looked like you were all having as much fun as we were! You were very professional and Jim was so friendly on the phone when arrange details for the day. Thank you for helping to make our day so special. We would recommend you to anyone!

  • Kate

    We had The Fanatics play at our wedding in July and they were nothing but incredible, we couldn't not recommend them enough! There was not one moment when the dance floor was empty and the calls for an encore were never ending. We feel so blessed to have found a band so sensational! Thank you all!

  • Lauren

    Greg and I would just like to thank you so much for making our evening reception so perfect. Literally everyone has said to us that you were amazing and the music you played was absolutely perfect. We were dancing at one point and the dance floor was literally packed. But I have to say our first dance was magical, Greg picking that song and the way you arranged it and played it was unbelievable. I can't watch any of videos people have sent without crying. I'm still totally amazed by it, I'll never forget the moment I realised what it was.

  • Rebecca

    Jim was very attentive leading up to our big day, making sure we were happy with song choices and set times etc and he made us feel at ease about the evening of the wedding. We’d never heard the band play live, but loved their video on Alive Network and their repertoire was exactly what we were looking for. We had complete faith that they would put in a good performance on the night and we weren’t disappointed. We danced the whole night, and our guests had a great time too. We couldn’t recommend the band more! If you want a fun band playing both modern and classic music for you to boogy the night away to then The Fanatics are your band!

  • Heather

    The Fanatics were absolutely incredible when they played at our wedding a couple of weeks ago. They were very well organised and professional in the lead up to the wedding. Jim liaised with our venue, spoke to us about timings and song choices so everything ran smoothly on the night. They are all very talented! We had a few guests who were professional musicians at the wedding and they all commented how good The Fanatics were. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you so much again for helping to create such an amazing atmosphere at our wedding.

  • Emma

    The Fanatics were awesome! They managed to get a wide range of people and ages onto the dance floor! They ensured the atmosphere at our wedding reception was cool and fun and everyone enjoyed themselves. A special thank you to the band for learning our first dance song; it was even better than we imagined and meant so much to us to have them play and sing it live. I personally think it was even better than the original song! Thank you so much!
